I Have a Crazy Mother In Law

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 89 People

    She hates me because she thinks I'm stealing

    her son away from her. But the truth is he doesn't like spending time with her because all she does is abuse him and call his father names. I'm always the one forcing him to go see her and to spend time with her but when he does he comes back hurt and upset.
